Storm Did Not Hurt Gulfport
Harbor. The permanency of the deep water harbor at Gulfport was thoroughly demonstrated by last Thursday’s storm. Since the ti dal wave along the coast that penetrated northward as far as St. Louis a careful examination of the channel and basin at Gulf port has been made, resulting in tne discovery that it has not been damaged in the slightest clcgiee. The fear has been frequently expressed that the Gulfpoit har bor would be likely to till up with sand during severe storms along the coast, but this is evi dently a mistake. Several years ago the harbor was submitted to a yery severe test, and the event of last Thursday has demonstra ted beyond the slightest doubt that Gulfport is a permanent harbor. Instead of being tilled with sand, the channel and basin are a few inches deeper than on the day prior to the storm. The Gulf & Ship Island road will immediately commence work on the construction of anew pier to the basin, the work to cost nearly a half million dollars. It is practically certain that the next rivers and harbors bill pass ed by Congress will contain a lib eral apprpriation for Gulfport, and the harbor promises to be come one of the most important on the Mexican gulf, rivaling Mobile, Pensacola and Savannah. Mississippians In St. Louis. The Mississippi Society, of St. Louis, has issued the follow ing address, and requests that the press of this state give pub licity to same; The Mississippi Society of St. Louis is an organization of form er Mississippians, now resident 'in this city, for the purpose of promoting social relations among them and of fostering a love, for the state of Mississippi and a memory of her achievements and traditions. It is the desire of its members to have every one living here (who is qualified) associate him self with us. The principal qualification for membership is former residence in Mississippi or descent from one residing there, or marriage with one hav ing such qualification. It is very difficult, in a city of this size, to acertain enough as to various people to know of their being qualified. For that reason, the society asks your aid. Will vou be so kind as to men tion, in your columns the fact of our society’s existence and to ask all who may see the publication to notify one of the undersigned as to the name and address oi any one living here who is quail tied for membership, we will then see that an opportunity to join us is afforded them. Thanking you in advance for such assistance as you may give, „ we are, Yours truly, R. B. Haughton, President, Laclede B’ld’g., St. Louis. R. Holt Roundebush, Sec., Leclede B’ld’g., St. Louis. Farmers Look to Your Interest. West Point, Columbus, Ma ben, Ackerman, Louisville and Mathiston can’t compete with Starkville in buying cotton. Bring your cotton to Starkville. We should get the cotton that goes to Eupora and such other small towns. The Farmers’ Union is a great organization. According, to the Columbus Commercial most of the people there, calling themselves Chris tians are a “crowd of consum mate hypocrites and grafters, who use the church as a kind of background where they can sneak into and hide after com mitting murder and theft.” This is a sad commentary on the Christianity of that city. Of course there are consumate hypocrites in all churches, every where, but it is to be hoped they do not predominate to the extent charged by the Commercial, of Columbus. Perhaps the Com mercial has overdrawn the pic ture. Let us hope so, at any rate. —West Point Leader.
